Feeling brave, Victoria?
Whether you’re in search of your next great adventure or looking to cross “jumping off a tall building” off your bucket list, we’ve got you covered!
The Make-A-Wish Foundation is bringing its national ‘Rope for Hope’ campaign to Victoria for the second year in a row, allowing individuals and groups to experience rappelling down the 160 ft tall CIBC building once they raise $1,500 each for the foundation.
On Friday, May 24th, teams of bravehearts will be participating in the event after weeks of fundraising to achieve the targeted minimum $1,500 donation amount for the Make-A-Wish BC & Yukon Vancouver Island.
This year, Victoria Buzz will be participating in the fundraiser to send reporter Brishti Basu over the edge.
And we want one lucky follower to make the jump with her, without having to fundraise themselves.
Victoria Buzz's very own Brishti Basu is going to rappel down the iconic CIBC building right here in downtown Victoria to help fundraise for Make-A-Wish BC & Yukon
